Corbin has been an attorney for over 36 years. His practice is now limited to family law cases involving the following issues:
Dissolution of Marriage
Medical Support of Children
Division of Assets and Debts
Division of Retirement Plans (QDRO's, FLO'S, COAP's)
Not all of these issues arise in every case. But family law differs from other areas of practice, in that when the original legal proceedings are completed, there may be changes later. Corbin may also assist you in subsequent modification proceedings:
Modification of Child Support
Modification of Medical Support
Reallocation of Child Dependency Exemptions
Modification of Parenting Plans
Modification of Maintenance/Alimony
Corbin works with clients to understand how (and in some cases, if) the law may help them.
Corbin works hard to settle cases sometimes through direct negotiations with opposing counsel and sometimes through mediation with a mediator separately hired by both parties. When matters cannot be settled, he represents clients before the District Court, and if necessary, the Montana Supreme Court.
Corbin is a trained mediator and can assist individuals and their attorneys to resolve family law matters out of court. Mediated settlement
conferences can be remarkably effective in resolving even difficult disputes. When Corbin is hired as a mediator, however, he does not provide legal advice to either party nor does he draft legal document.
